As a small business owner, planning out your business goals and keeping motivated to meeting business goals is a long road that sees its fair share of flexibility, no matter if your plans are year on year or a five-year plan.
Sometimes it relies on baby steps and other times it takes a giant leap to meet your expectations, and it can feel pressure or a sense of control. Equally, some businesses focus on what they have done the year before and others will focus on what they are projecting for the year ahead. We all have different approaches and reactions to both meeting our targets and missing them.
Without a doubt the key to achieving your targets relies on many different factors coming into play, such as having the right staff doing the right job, keeping up to date with changes in the industry or guidelines being implemented, as well as keeping a heads up on how your competitors may be gaining an edge and how to navigate around that.
Taking on so many roles is bound to build a lot of pressure, and some parts of operating your business need to take priority to meet your goals. That means some areas you need to take a step back from, which then means handing them to someone who can adequately perform in the role.
A good example is looking at the bookkeeping for the company, which may have been an easy task when you first started. However now, with the company taking on more and more employees and demands on your time, it may end up taking a back seat until the end of the financial year, which then takes a huge chunk of your time away from the operations of the business to do all of the stressful number crunching’s.
You wouldn’t be the first boss who has barked out orders not to be disturbed during January or spending a lot of your own family time in January pouring over invoices and receipts you have collated over the year.
